How are development applications evaluated?

The Las Cruces Comprehensive Plan guides the review process of all development applications within the City. Within this document, development policy is addressed through eight elements representing our city fabric:

  • Community Facilities
  • Economic Development
  • Environment
  • Housing
  • Land Use
  • Transportation
  • Urban Design
  • Utilities

A five tier framework within the comprehensive plan affords an opportunity to create more detailed policy at a more specific level of geographic area or topic such as the Thoroughfare Plan, Stormwater Management Plan, Master Utility Plan, and Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan. These plans or documents are also used in the review process.
